Dual-grille Charger coming?

by David Zatz on


The latest fashion in car design is the “dual grille,” where a small grille is placed in the usual position just under the hood, with a massive gaping hole underneath which is presumably the actual air opening for the radiator. To a small degree, Dart uses the dual-grille form, but Ford has been the biggest adopter of “tiny grilles above massive ones,” following the Aston Martin look. For Charger to take this route will make it somewhat more consistent with the Dart, albeit very far indeed from Challenger.

According to Chrysler insiders, the Charger will also be adopting the dual-grille look, in the first major departure from the original “new Charger” face. What’s more, the new front fascia will start up in model-year 2015, meaning that in less than a year, assuming no delays, we should be seeing it on the street.

As reported earlier, the new 2015 Dodge Charger will almost certainly have a standard eight-speed automatic across the board, the latest UConnect 2 system with automatic updates sent over the wire and stronger cell-phone integration, and whatever other goodies Chrysler can throw at it.
